I am a first year PhD student at UNSW Sydney jointly supervised by Dr. Lina Yao and Dr. Dong Gong. Prior to joining UNSW, I was a research assistant at the Computer Vision Center, Barcelona where I worked with Dr. Joost van de Weijer on continual learning. I completed my Erasmus Mundus Joint Master's Degree in Advanced Systems Dependability from the University of St Andrews, UK, and the University of Lorraine, France. During my master's, I interned with the MULTISPEECH group at Inria Nancy where I worked with Dr. Emmanuel Vincent on training domain-specific language models for Automatic Speech Recognition. Before my master's and right after my undergrad, I worked as a machine learning engineer at FactSet Research Systems Inc.
I earned my BS in Computer Science and Engineering from MNNIT Allahabad, India. While there, I also interned at the Natural Language Processing Research lab at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-BHU). I grew up dreaming of quasi-stellar objects and witnessing first-generation post-monarchic changes in Nepal. I enjoy running, traveling, chatting, and movies in my free time. I am readily reachable via any media mentioned on this website.
